what’s in my bag?

Let’s talk about the tote bag. It is a teacher staple. The other day I commuted with 4 tote bags to school. One for my unit planning class, one for my art class, one for the gym, and my regular old tote-bag-that-is-actually-my-purse. But totes aren’t exclusive to teachers–photographers, library goers, and grocery shoppers come to mind. Is the cavernous tote among one of your favorite types of bags? If so, here’s a few of my current favorites, as well as what’s in my tote right now.

// a structured tote perfect for Monday morning. I’m really good at pre-packing my bag on Sunday in preparation for the week, but that kind of organization is all downhill from there.

// A Very Hungry Caterpillar tote that I would use all the time if I taught first grade!

// a tote specially designed for all your yoga needs. I’ve been hitting up two yoga classes per week lately, so I might even ask for this for my birthday.

// another literature inspired tote. I have not read Jane Eyre but I will have to make time for that if I am to ever sport the tote. I absolutely love the colors.

// a neutral tote. Neutrals are my favorite.

Here’s what’s in my current bag, a lovely tote I’ve been eyeing at Target and finally splurged on. First, what you don’t see: 4 individually wrapped prunes that were totally smooshed, a pair of dirty gym socks (ew), and dozens of crumpled receipts.

what remains //

// a map of bus lines. I am new to riding the bus and I’m kind of bad at it. I have a tendency to disembark too early. Goofball.

// a coin purse. I think I must be using all of my quarters for coffee because when I need some coinage for parking, there’s only pennies.

// one of my favorite resources for lesson planning. Isn’t the cover of that book awesome?

// a variety of writing utensils. I have my go to’s: Bic pens and pencils, and anything Sharpie.

// Smith’s lip balm for day and red lipstick for night.

// sunglasses I don’t even use because I’m out of contacts and my prescription is expired.

// the best hand cream ever from Neutrogena. Another one of my go to’s.

Now, go clean the junk out of your purse. Let’s all be organized together!
